Broadwater River to Curl Lake

Broadwater River to Curl Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This top-of-the-world hike leads past cascading water, open meadows, and trees to majestic high country lakes, all with relatively little elevation gain. The trail meanders through scenic Broadwater Meadow along the east side of the cascading river to Curl Lake and Broadwater Lake. The lakes are actually one huge 1 24-acre lake strung together by the Broadwater River, a tributary of the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River. A wooded valley with open meadows surrounds the lakes. The trail begins from the Clarks Fork Trailhead and Clarks Fork Canyon Falls, where the thunderous cascade is forced through a narrow gorge."
